Our Mission

To educate, excite, and equip an inclusive population of elementary students to pursue a sustainable world through a hands-on program in bio-science and urban agriculture

We pursue our mission at multiple levels through a unique STEM program taught in a working urban agricultural environment. Our educational programs focus on instilling an understanding and appreciation for the processes and cycles of nature, health and nutrition. A central goal is to foster a culture of science that opens a pathway to scientific careers.

Participating students span a diverse socio-economic and geographic spectrum. To ensure the broadest possible reach, the Venture plans to employ state-of-the art communication technology to share its programs with other elementary schools across the St. Louis region and beyond.
